Assessing Wartime Destruction in Ukraine

by Martin Makaryan

The New York Times has collaborated with researchers at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center and Oregon State University to create an interactive map showing the extent of physical destruction in Ukraine since Russia’s invasion in 2022. Researchers analyzed years of satellite image data—more than 10,000 images in total—to track small changes in blocks and individual buildings. According to the visualization, Russia’s invasion has destroyed more than 900 schools, hospitals, and churches, while some towns like Marinka have experienced near-total building destruction. 

Take a look.
